What is Stroke?
Stroke is a disease that affects the arteries leading to and within the brain. It is one of the top cause of death and leading cause of disability. Stroke occurs when a blood vessel that carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain is either blocked by a clot or bursts. When that happens, part of the brain cannot get the blood and oxygen, resulting in brain cells die. There are two types of stroke, ischemic stroke (blockage within artery) and haemorrhagic stroke (rupture of an artery).
Rehabilitation is a key part of stroke recovery!
Stroke is usually associated with the loss of movements. Therefore, the goal of stroke rehabilitation is to help patients relearn skills they lost when a stroke affected part of their brain. It can help to regain their independence and improve quality of life as well.
